Moving On.....

Yesterday's chocolate covered almond slip is OFFICIALLY in the past!! I rocked out my strength training session today like a mad woman - it was awesome!! I also got in a 30-min jog/walk on the treadmill, which surprisingly felt great. I hadn't gone on a treadmill in a little while since the majority of my cardio over the past few months came from martial arts (kickboxing/jiu-jitsu)! It was really good and I see the benefits of mixing things up every now and then. :)

I can't believe this year is coming to an end!! Two thousand and Nine was truly 2KMINE!!!! I'm working on a special end of year post for tomorrow!! Just incredible how far I've come. I remember this time last year being the first year that I was not making any weight loss resolutions (as I did so many times in the past)...I was about 3 weeks into the journey and look at me now!!

I've been noticing a lot of the weight loss advertisements starting on TV, Radio and print and for once, I'm not thinking of what I need to do to lose this weight! It feels really great to be living in this moment of progressing through my journey!! Wow!! What a difference a year makes!!

Anyway, that's it for today, just wanted to let you guys know that I am back on track today and it feels wonderful.

BTW, I've added a picture of me from the Therien Martial Arts Christmas Party last week. I had such a nice time. This is a pick with one of my Kickboxing Teachers (Ingrid, AKA INTENSE in the pink dress) and one of my sparring partners and new found friend Nicole. I didn't have my camera with me....I had gone straight from work (quick wardrobe change in the bathroom). I wish I got a pic of Sensei Derek - I will in the future! :)


Until next time...

Love love love that you do martial arts. For some reason, I don't happen upon a lot of people that do it. How long have you been training? :)
